What's on my Kidmin to do list this week? July 10, 2017

 
Life moves so fast in kidmin and there have been lots of things going on and I just don't seem to make time to blog about them. I really, really want to because I love having that record of what's going on.   But for now, here's what's on the agenda this week.

Monday- VBS Final clean up.  We have some walls still covered and we will be sad to see them go but it's time to get the last few things down and move on.
Finish writing devotionals for preteen camp books

Tuesday- another church is coming to get our VBS decorations. They purchased some of the more expensive pieces and we made the rest so we shared!
I also will get started on printed the books for preteen camp.

Wednesday- Finish printing and binding preteen camp books
PowerSource! We are teaching on Esther this month.  I set up the Bible story room with 4 corner vignettes depicting a part of the story. I will get pictures and post them.

Thursday- Set up for children's church Sunday

Friday- Work on decorations for preteen camp

Saturday- Work on decorations for preteen camp

Sunday- teach 5th/6th graders The Gospel Project and parent meeting for Preteen camp

Another fun and busy week ahead! I'm praying that God would use me and grow me and stretch me to be more like Him.

Gentleness Bible Lesson

"But the fruit of the Spirit is, love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control." Galatians 5:22-23a

Our children's Church has been doing a unit on the fruit of the Spirit.  Each week we learn one of the components on that list. This lesson is about gentleness.

Here is the story I adapted focusing on Jesus' gentleness.  As with all scripture there are many facets to each episode.  There are tons we can learn from them but when you teach children, consider the age and the maturity level of your kids. We are teaching 4-7 year olds and some of our 4 year olds are very "young".  So this story has been adapted, not changing scripture but just being wise about what information a young child needs to know.

In this passage we see Jesus being gentle with a sinful woman. There are several scriptures portraying Jesus as gentle.  You could choose any of them.  For this unit the curriculum outline we follow uses this passage, …

Sermon Notes Books for Kids and How to make an 8 page mini book.

I made these sermon notes books for our kids attending “big church” and they loved them.  You can get the original free file from here.

As I was cleaning out the quiet bags at church this week I decided to do something different and so I shrunk them down and made mini-books. 

I love little things and kids do too! I got the idea when my little 4-year old friend was visiting me.  She brought me a scrap sheet of paper and I quickly made it into a little 8-page mini book for her to draw in. She loved it! So that got me to thinking about our quiet bags and sermon notes. So I got busy reformatting the half-sheet books onto one sheet and here’s how the books look now.



The inside pages…

Aren’t they cute?

The best thing is that they are made from only one sheet of paper.

Here’s my free mini-sermon notes printable.

I’ve used this mini-book template for years for so many different things!

Quiet Bags - Sermon Notes for Kids

Our church supplies a "quiet bag" to help little ones stay occupied during church.  We keep it simple with coloring pages, a small toy, and some colored pencils.  No markers or crayons are allowed. :)

I decided to make some little booklets "Sermon Notes"  that the kids can write and draw in then take home.

I'll show you what I made.  These are VERY simple and I'll change them up from time to time. I designed them with reader/writers and non-reader/writers in mind.

I just used an inexpensive graphics program that I've had for years.







Here is a printable version, without our church name on the cover if you would like to use these in your church.

Please let me know if you use this file!

I love coming up with things to help children interact with Christ.  Maybe you have other ideas you can share.  I'd love to know about what your church does to help disciple children.  Please leave a comment or link!
